Binding: Softcover Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers Date published: 2002 ISBN-13: 9780391041226 ISBN: 0391041223

Description: Ancient texts are ambiguous, and the Hebrew Bible is no exception. One might even frame the history of a religion as a history of a belief system's management of ambiguity. Applying a linguistic model, Aaron systematically examines and veritably celebrates this inherent ambiguity in order to understand God-related idioms in the Hebrew Bible, more specifically, whether a particular idiom is meant to be understood metaphorically. Aaron examines the original intent of the writers of biblical ... Read More

Binding: Hardcover Publisher: Shangri-La Publications Date published: 2006 ISBN-13: 9780971949638 ISBN: 0971949638

Description: New. In this volume, Dr. Abrahamsen shows that vestiges of the prehistoric Nature goddess, worshipped by Neolithic and other peoples for millennia, survived into the Graeco-Roman period, under different guises, and influenced the development of Christianity. She argues that, while a male-dominated religious ethos supplanted goddess religion in the West starting with the Bronze Age, goddess beliefs and practices persisted "underground" and could not be completely suppressed or ignored. Her ... Read More

Binding: Hardcover Publisher: Shangri-La Publications Date published: 2003 ISBN-13: 9780971949607 ISBN: 0971949603

Description: New. I will not speak here of Islam, but of Muslims. Islam, like Christianity or Judaism, is an abstraction that does not exist as a body or entity in itself. The use of the word Islam in titles such as Islam in the Republic and Is Islam Free to be Critical? is wholly erroneous. These titles should rather be Muslims in the Republic and Are Muslims Free to be Critical? In this work, I use the term Islam only in quotes from other sources. This book, which will also be available in French, ... Read More
